I actually GOT this question today. Funny, I had just read a friend's post about how people ask uber dumb questions to people adopting, and I had been thinking how fortunate I was that I get very few (so far)... but today it happened. I was in the docotr's office and a nurse I'd never seen had my chart. She noticed that my doctor had written in my chart that we were adopting from China (she, my doctor, LOVED the term "paper pregnant" so she wrote that down!). Here's how it went:
nurse "So, you're adopting from China?"
nurse: "Is it easy (to adopt) from there?"
me: (WTF??!!!) "um. well...I guess so. If you are married and willing to go through the very long fairly invasive process."
nurse:"How much do they (read:China) charge for the babies?"
me: totally dumb-struck. "um...you mean, how much does the entire process cost, in dollars? A bit."
anyway, you get the idea. I basically told her I would rather have a child than a brand new car.
Also, my doctor basically told me they would monitor me and see how things go. I'm should try to lose some weight, and excersise more, then come back for more tests. Or I could be put on medication. no thank you. I'll walk my happy ass around the block more often. I want NOTHING TO DO WITH MEDICATION if I can help it. I go back in 3 months for more tests. Goody.
